BOSTON (WHDH/AP) – An elderly woman has been treated in an area hospital for injuries sustained when two police officers on motorcycles collided with each other.
Police say two on-duty officers responding to a call of an officer needing medical help ran into each other and hit a pedestrian during Saturday’s Pride Parade in Boston.
All three sustained minor injuries and were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital as a precaution.
Cellphone video captured the moments after the motorcycles collided.
Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans told 7News the officers were responding to a medical call at the corner of Beacon and Joy streets.
“It looks like an officer was having a medical condition, I think it turned out being more related to the heat. So, the officers were responding to his assistance and I think the two motorcycles clipped each other’s wheels, they went down,” Evans said. “There was a woman on the side here, she was an older woman, and she got clipped by the bike going down.”
The 48th Boston Pride Parade began Saturday around noon at Copley Square and ended at City Hall Plaza.
